Creating the right environment 11.9.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
After terming it a 'roadblock ministry' under the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) regime, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance government has set about changing the face of the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEF&CC) to one that enables 'ease of business' while attempting to maintain sustainable development. While the jury is out on the 'sustainable development' aspect, over the last three years, the ministry has certainly gone about revising and overhauling the regulatory regime of environmental governance. This trend has continued as the ministry is in the process of ushering in more crucial changes to central environmental legislations such as Environment Protection Act, Coastal Regulation Zone notification, 2011, and is also on the cusp of approving commercial cultivation of a genetically modified crop for the first time. Ease of business At the heart of wholesale changes made in environmental regulations during the last three years has been the ...

Clear pending applications for sand removal in Udupi: BJP 9.9.2017 deccanherald.com
The BJP unit has demanded that the district administration process all previous applications for sand removal in the district at the earliest. District BJP president Mattar Ratnakar Hedge told reporters here on Saturday that although the sand extraction activities have started in the district, measures should be taken immediately to permit all the 164 applicants to remove the sand in CRZ area. He alleged that although the district administration has initiated measures, it is not keen to take the process forward. He said that the district BJP unit would take up a protest rally from Hejamadi to Kaup on September 11 to condemn the "lackadaisical attitude" of the Congress-led state government. It would be followed by a protest meet at Kaup, he said. The government has utterly failed to offer the assured sites to the applicants under 94C and 94 CC. Around 7,000 applications have been received. He said that the district administration is also charging Rs 6,000 to Rs 7,000 for 2.5 cents of land. He demanded ...
